INTRODUCTION: Skin is one of the frequent site of disease in human body. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a safe diagnostic method in these cases. FNAC has some limitation, particularly related to representativity of samples, exact typing of skin adnexal tumours and classifying the nature of metastatic cutaneous nodules. Thus, FNAC alone may not give a confirmative diagnosis regarding few skin lesions. Hence, histopathological study has been the standard technique for the diagnosis of skin lesions...

Pulmonary actinomycosis is a rare pulmonary infection that often exhibits unspecific symptoms and radiological findings. We herein report a case of pulmonary actinomycosis that mimicked pulmonary aspergilloma in an immunocompetent patient.

Actinomycosis is a chronic suppurative granulomatous infection most commonly involving the cervicofacial region. Clinical diagnosis is usually difficult, and fine-needle aspiration cytology or imaging studies are usually unhelpful in diagnosing actinomycosis. Definitive diagnosis is based on the histopathological examination of a tissue biopsy. The authors report a case of a 32-year-old healthy man who underwent multiple surgeries over a period of 7 years to correct a posttraumatic scar on his forehead with unusual behavior...

Actinomycosis is a chronic granulomatous infection that commonly occurs in the cervicofacial region. Although Actinomcyes is an element of the normal oral flora, infections of the facial skin are very rare because of the entirely endogenous habitation of the organism. The authors report a case of facial actinomycosis, which mimicked a cutaneous tumor both clinically and surgically in a 44-year-old woman with chronic renal failure and Hepatitis C viral infection. The majority of cases can be treated with long-term antibiotics...

Actinomycosis, an infectious bacterial disease caused by Actinomyces species, is very rare and is characterized by contiguous spreading, subacute to chronic granulomatous inflammation and the formation of multiple abscesses and sinus tracts that may discharge sulfur granules. Actinomycosis that presents on the skin without endogenous origin is called primary cutaneous actinomycosis, and the occurrence and treatment of primary cutaneous actinomycosis is rarely reported. This report describes the treatment of primary cervicofacial actinomycosis with a literature review, and emphasizes the importance of surgical option for complete remission of the disease...

General wildlife health surveillance is a valuable source of information on the causes of mortality, disease susceptibility and pathology of the investigated hosts and it is considered to be an essential component of early warning systems. However, the representativeness of data from such surveillance programs is known to be limited by numerous biases. The roe deer (Capreolus capreolus capreolus) is the most abundant ungulate and a major game species all over Europe. Yet, internationally available literature on roe deer pathology is scarce...

Abdominal actinomycosis is a rare disease caused by Gram-positive anaerobic Actinomyces bacteria. Here, we present a patient with an intrauterine contraceptive device who developed a long lasting and unexplained recurrent, painful abdominal swelling a few months after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Primary cutaneous actinomycosis is a rare clinical form with variable presentation. The tumoral presentation of actinomycosis as pseudocarcinomatous or sarcomatous masses is completely rare. The management of cutaneous actinomycosis needs proper antibiotic treatment and surgical resection would not be adequate alone. Herein, we report a case of primary cutaneous actinomycosis on the dorsal surface of the hand as draining and infiltrated lesions along with the scar of previous tumor excision that had not received proper antibiotics after the surgery...

Abdominal actinomycosis is an uncommon pediatric infection that often manifests with a tumor-like lesion. We describe a previously healthy 11-year-old girl who presented with right lower quadrant abdominal pain and drainage. Computed tomography scan showed an abdominal wall mass. Surgical debridement cultures grew Actinomyces meyeri. Literature review identified 18 additional pediatric cases since 1964 that we have summarized.

The actinomycosis is a suppurative infection due to an anaerobic and microaerophillic bacteria called actinomyces. Only few case reports are described for the mediastinal locations of this rare entity. We report a new case of inflammatory pseudotumor in the mediastinum due to Aggregatibacte actinomycetemcomitans revealed by hemoptysis. The mediastinoscopy procedure with biopsy was needed to confirm the definitive bacteriological diagnosis by a positive culture. During the postoperative course, a cutaneous fistula was found which had a favourable evolution after appropriate antibiotherapy...

INTRODUCTION: Nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma is a rare clinicopathological entity, formerly called midline lethal granuloma. Following progress in histology and the routine use of immunohistochemistry, nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma was recognized as a distinct entity by WHO in 2001. CASE REPORT: The authors report the case of a 22-year-old, insulin-dependent diabetic woman, who presented with mid-facial inflammatory swelling following facial trauma, initially diagnosed and treated as cellulitis of the face...

INTRODUCTION: Appendicular actinomycosis is a rare disease produced by cecal appendix invasion by Actinomyces gender bacteria after a predisposing cause that disrupts mucosal barrier, such as acute appendicitis. The highest frequency appears in adults; however, there are cases in paediatric age described in literature. The aim of this article is to introduce a case of appendicular actinomycosis in a child with atypical presentation and to review the literature. CLINICAL CASE: 10-year-old boy transferred to our hospital due to intraoperative finding at a different centre of a right flank tumor, without identification of cecal appendix...

Actinomycosis is a relatively rare infection caused by Gram-positive bacteria. We present the case of a 54-year-old, previously healthy, male patient with a history of severe penicillin allergy who developed severe pneumonia and empyema caused by Actinomyces meyeri. Presenting symptoms included productive cough, right upper quadrant pain, and chills and rigors. He required drainage of the empyema via tube and prolonged antibiotic treatment with intravenous ceftriaxone for 2 weeks followed by oral doxycycline for 6 months...
